Positions

Overview

  • I graduated in 1990 from Dartmouth College with a BA in physics and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint program with a doctorate in Physical Oceanography. I was then a post-doctoral fellow at the Marine Life Research Group at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I am now an associate professor at the University of New Hampshire.
